If you have excess solar electricity, you can send it back to the grid in return for a credit (known as a Feed-in Tariff or FiT) on your power bill. Not every energy retailer offers FiTs, so we recommend you speak to your retailer in advance to negotiate your FiT rate.

An electrical grid, or electric grid, is an interconnected network for delivering electricity from producers to consumers. Australia has a complex, very large distribution network, consisting of generating stations that produce electrical power, and high voltage transmission lines that carry power from distant sources to the end user.
